The Glass Castle

by Destin Daniel Cretton Gala Premieres

An entire castle made out of glass would be the answer to all her dreams. Together with her alcoholic father Rex, her mother Mary Rose and her three brothers and sisters, Jeannette was made to travel the entire South of the USA even as a small child. Chasing after a dream of finding paradise in a new place while avoiding debt in the one left behind. Caught between her father's unshakable but destructive love and his selfish behaviour, Jeannette is left having to pave her own route. Four years after the indie hit SHORT TERM 12, director Destin Daniel Cretton returns with the cinema adaptation of Jeannette Walls' memoirs. Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson and Naomi Watts enrich the retrospective of a turbulent American family history with awe-inspiring glamour.
